Apricot Chamomile pLambic Tasting

Appearance: Very slightly hazy, mostly bright yellow colour. Spritzy soda like head that dies quickly after pouring.

Aroma: Lemon zest, citrus, musty, hay, herbal-floral aroma.

Flavor: medium-light sourness, some musty fruit funk followed by the chamomile. Sort of a bubblegum- apricot mixed flavor, somewhat reminiscent of bergamot. Some cheerios flavor present.

Mouthfeel: Very spritzy carbonation, dry as a bone, but has a weird slick mouthfeel near the end.

Overall: The cheerios (THP) flavor should fade with some time in the bottle, but overall I'm happy. Some bottles still seem to have a hint of the rubber flavor, but hopefully that will fade in time as well. The sourness could be a bit more assertive, but at this stage it is very refreshing and pleasantly sour. I probably used a bit too much chamomile but that also should fade in time. The apricot was not super aggressive, but that's not surprising considering this beer is about 7-8 months past the initial fruiting.
